Cold war artificial intelligence: a threat to all mankind?

In the spring of 2016 artificial intelligence system called AlphaGo defeated the world champion in the game of go in the match at the Four Seasons hotel in Seoul. The world reacted immediately. Most Americans and Europeans are not familiar with go, the ancient Asian game that involves placing black and white pebbles on a wooden Board. The technology that emerged victorious was even more incomprehensible: a form of artificial intelligence operating on the principles of machine learning, where training the computer to recognize regularities and patterns to it feed large amounts of data. He is able to make their own strategic decisions.

"Human, all too human" is Not whether we will become hostages of our mind, implementing universal AI?
Проект: Future of the Information Society

Many scientists and engineers have unreasonably high expectations for artificial intelligence. Somehow, they believe that intelligent machines, once created, will immediately solve many of our problems and will lead to a technological singularity. However, this way of thinking is a fallacy.

Scientists tried for two years to find out who can "sacrifice" unmanned vehicle: the passengers or pedestrians, men or women. Clearer did not...
Проект: Future of the Information Society

In 2016, the Massachusetts Institute of technology (MIT) published a special test, which was to help the makers of self-driving cars to formulate the basic ethical principles for artificial intelligence. In the study, researchers tried to figure out how to behave unmanned vehicle during an accident, and whose life must be a priority: women or men, young or elderly, pedestrians crossing the road by the rules — or offenders.

Scientists from MIT said that could be responsible for the development of intelligence
Проект: New in Science

Despite the fact that the nervous system of humans and other mammals already studied well enough how some of its aspects still remains a mystery. For example, if we compare the structure of the brain of humans and our closest of kin creatures primates, differences are not so much. However, all this does not explain the origin of a man of such unique properties, such as intelligence. And perhaps scientists from MIT came close to understanding what gives us this intelligence.

The Pentagon invests $ 2 billion in the implementation of military AI
Проект: New in the military

It was noted earlier that the Pentagon has initiated work on the creation of the control center of the military AI. However, not long ago, new information came to light. In collaboration with DARPA, the defense Ministry plans to equip artificial intelligence of some military equipment.

IBM Watson has issued an "unsafe and improper" recommendations for the treatment of cancer
Проект: Future of the Information Society

The company's internal documents show IBM that medical experts working with Watson, had found "numerous examples of unsafe and incorrect recommendations for treatment" using the software, according to Stat News. From the documents it became clear that the product gives "often inaccurate" speculation that causes "serious questions about the process of creating content and the technology it is based".

Are you afraid of the new retirement age, and you better be afraid of the fact that the machines learned to think
Проект: Future of the Information Society

Computers have always been something like chopper with electric adjustment and sensors — useful from the point of view tricked out with devices that make life easier, but without direct management do not in themselves able. Until then, until they came to the artificial intelligence...

How to change people when they become inseparable from the machines?
Проект: Future of the Information Society

One of the most exciting and simultaneously frightening outcomes technological progress is the ability to merge our consciousness with machines. If this would work, our cognitive ability will increase great. But what is more important, however, is the fact that there will be new people, emotionally, spiritually and consciously very different from us. When this happens, we can't even imagine how it will change our experience of life.

Chinese companies monitor brain impulses and emotions of employees
Проект: New in Science

We already know how hard is the Internet censorship in China. In addition, there is a facial recognition system like the one which recently caught the criminal in Russia. The Chinese are not stopped, and now they're monitoring brainwaves to understand what emotions experienced by the employees of different enterprises.

How artificial intelligence is helping scientists to find new materials
Проект: Future of the Information Society

For hundreds of years, new materials were found by trial and error, or luck and confidence. Now scientists are using artificial intelligence to accelerate the process. Recently, researchers from northwestern University used AI to determine how to make new hybrid materials of metal and glass is 200 times faster than with experiments in the laboratory. Other scientists are creating a database that includes thousands of links to special algorithms could predict which of them need to combine to form new and interesting materials. Other researchers use AI to publish your "recipes" on how to make these materials.
